THOMPSON, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut preparatory school has hired an attorney to look at its anti-bullying policies following the death of 15-year-old student.
Connor Tronerud died Dec. 4. He lived in Sutton, Massachusetts and was a sophomore at Marianapolis Preparatory School, an independent Catholic school in Thompson.
Connor’s family has set up a page to raise money for bullying prevention. On it they say Connor was a private person but “struggled with peers invading that privacy in order to provoke a response.”
The Hartford Courant reports the school sent a letter to parents saying it has hired Hartford attorney Jeffrey Pingpank to investigate and recommend policy changes. Pingpank has already visited the school.
